HEY HEEEYYYY Philly people!! At Lydia Joy Photography, we ditched the traditional “engagement session” and invited our couples to join us for “date night” sessions instead. Fishtown, Philadelphia is the perfect spot to explore multiple locations with plenty of unique spots without having to venture too far.
Here are my 10 favorite “date night” spots in Fishtown:
If having a “favorite couple” is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!!
Ferns, Pothos, and Monsteras… OH MY! This date-night engagement session is every plant lover’s DREAM!! right? I first met Brooke when she was the makeup artist for a wedding I photographed (y’all, she’s incredible! check her out HERE) Anyway, thanks to the wonderful world of Instagram, we stayed in touch. Naturally, I was THRILLED when […]
LISTEN TO THEIR LOVE STORY ON MY PODCAST HERE Leigh Ann + Ed’s first date was in a dive bar, and even though it took NINE MONTHS for them to see each other again, I think it was only fitting to end in a little “dive bar” type brewery. (Pumpkin beer for. the. win.) Check […]
When asked if i wanted to explore Fishtown with Alyssa + Colin, I literally jumped out of my seat. HECK TO THE YES! Not only is Fishtwon filled with endless things to do, but joining Alyssa + Colin for their “date night” was pure fun! We laughed so much and we were all sad when […]

This past Friday, in the *unexpected* snow fall, I made my way over to Baltimore, Maryland to photograph Kellen + Sean’s engagement session. We started at The Anthem House, the spectacular apartment building where the two of them live, and we ended at Little Havana, a small bar down the street. Not only were both […]
I clearly remember the first time I met with Hilary + Jonathan (at Starbucks.. duh!) Jonathan showed up in a Philadelphia Eagles t-shirt (soon after they won the Super Bowl)… so needless to say, I had my fingers crossed that I’d be lucky enough to photograph their wedding day (they clearly had good taste in […]
Working with Adrienne + Chris was so much fun!! I cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this year at Thousand Acre Farm!! Yesterday was their first time ever seeing Longwood Gardens, and they were in awe. Adrienne’s jaw dropped every time we entered a new room (and she went home with a million plants […]
At our initial meeting, these two knew they wanted their engagement session at Ocean City, MD. It’s where Jimmy proposed, it’s where Emily’s family has vacationed for years, and it’s somewhere they’ll definitely be visiting for years to come. I love photographing at a location that means so much to a couple. Add sand, saltwater, and […]
